Back in 2014 when we first moved here to Connecticut, I had a lot of material for these update posts, There was so much design work going on here at the time. Predictably, as we slowly but steadily made this house our home, these posts have slowed down. Now that we’ve been living here for a little over three years, what was a monthly update series has now become a twice a year check in.
But what a six months it’s been! Since my last update in July, a lot of the bigger projects around here have been crossed off my list. From updating our kitchen counter stools (above) to bringing in Pimlico Interiors to help us finally design the round table for our kitchen (below) We’ve been wanting a round table for this space for quite some time, but just needed a final professional push to make it happen. I’m so glad it did as it fits the space and our family so much better than the previous long rectangle table we’d had for over a decade. We also added these beautiful cane chairs from CB2 that Pimlico helped us customize the cushions with a durable yet neutral fabric.
There were a few smaller updates as well. After killing off a beautiful fuschia orchid in the dining room, I decided to upgrade to a beautiful silk orchid arrangement from Diane James Home. It’s the perfect pop of color in this otherwise very neutral space. I also added a little more color in the foyer with this beautiful blue side chair from One Kings Lane. It sits right outside the dining room, so my rationale was it could be easily used as extra seating should we need it. And, finally…a very small but significant change in our bedroom. Where we used to have a couple of beige neck rolls on
the bed (you can see them here) I streamlined to just one pretty white one. It’s such a small tweak, but looks a lot fresher and cleaner to me- so I love it!
The next big update around here will be on our third floor TV room. It’s a finished attic and I’ve been showing the progress in this space on my Insta-stories. Pimlico Interiors has been great with helping me make and source the design decisions here. Stay tuned for what I’m hoping will be an early spring/late winter reveal.
